Brown and Polar Bears have bodies that are both boy and girl at the same time. Native Americans have many old stories about bears who are “male mothers.”

Hawaiian Gecko: These

geckos are all girls. There are no boys. More all-girl species live in the South Pacific, French Polynesia and the Marianas Islands near New Guinea.

Gender in Nature

Bear: Many Grizzly, Black,

I learn so much from animals.

Clown Fish: The girl Clown Fish

body is larger than the boy body. And if the girl goes away and leaves the boy Clown Fish with the little fishes, he changes his body into a girl Clown Fish.
